The culture of testing is now well established within the Perl community
as a whole. It has a similar status within a number of other development
communities, or at least it is moving in that direction. Code coverage
has become well established as an important testing tool.

I'll provide a brief introduction to code coverage and then focus on how
to effectively use the Perl code coverage tool, Devel::Cover.

Topics to be covered include:

* Coverage criteria
* Integrating coverage into your development flow
* Dealing with code that cannot be covered
* Selecting files to cover
* Covering XS and C code
* Coverage reports
